      Description

      There is currently no easy way to configure OpenNMS Core services to run as non-root when installing OpenNMS on CentOS/RHEL or Debian/Ubunut. There are a few things which prevent this:

      • The runas user is hard coded as root in our start script and in the systemd unit file
      • A non-root user can't create or delete PID files
